Gateway FX laptop Series Thread *mods and upgrades* - Page 137

post #1361 of 2327
Would it be better to buy the 7809, or just get an older model and upgrade it? I want a 1920 x 1200 resolution, so I would have to replace the screen anyway. Plus the 5200rpm hdd is just too slow. I'd rather just have a 100gb 7200+ hdd, I don't need a lot of space, just speed.

Just got a 7805 from Best Buy this weekend. Love the laptop, put Windows 7 on it and everything works fine. One thing though, the screen is not that good, has horrible bleed and the image quality is not that great, messed around with the video settings for a couple of hours. Has anyone put a 1920x1200 screen in these before?

Would this screen fit??

This LG screen will fit. It's exactly what 7805 had before Gateway decided to change it to WXGA one.


Cheers...

If I may ask martee, how is the color on your screen and bleeding?

Guess, I'm lucky, 'cause I've got this screen with the notebook. There's no back-light bleed, no dead pixels. It isn't misty one as the AUO panel which I had in the 7811. Comparing to the previous screen color on the LG one is sharper and clear.
Others may have the opposite opinion and the WXGA screens are sharper. I think that's the personal preference.


Cheers...

Just wondering about people's windows index score. I have a p-6831 and my index score is 4.2. Should this not be higher? it's my processor(4.2) and ram(4.4) that seem to bring it down.

I saw a review where the base score was 4.5 with processor being 4.6 and my old laptop has a lesser processor and get's a 4.5.

Is my processor not working properly or should i just ignore this. my laptop was refurbished in the last 2mths so everything should be working properly.

Thanks.

Those scores mean basically nothing use super pi or something similar to test CPU scores.

Im interested to know what settings you guys use in the nvidia control panel. Particularly for the p-6831fx.

Also i keep getting a poor 3dmark06 basic edition score. With the latest invidia driver i only get 3600 and with the laptopvid2go latest driver even worse. Is the p-6831fx stock not supposed to get around 6500 or more?.

Help would be apreciated as im a noob at this stuff.

That is what you get without some drivers. That is way too much of a difference to attribute to settings. make sure you go to gateway's site and download all the drivers that apply to your system. After that try for your score. Then adjust all your settings to the very lowest settings and see what happens. Also, run speedfan in the background with a chart to see what temps your getting. That could be causing it.
